Description: The Blue Mountains Natural Resources Institute held three types of meetings to obtain public and scientific input into the development of strategies and recommendations for addressing forest health issues in the Blue Mountains of Oregon and Washington. Seven strategies are proposed: (1) plan and implement management activities on a landscape level; (2) enhance training and education on natural resources and forest health; (3) facilitate public involvement in planning, decisionmaking, and implementing solutions to natural resource problems; (4) develop a framework and implement an operational integrated database for landscape-level planning and management; (5) develop a framework and implement an integrated monitoring system for landscape-level planning and management; 6) assess economic and social effects of forest health issues on people, communities, and the area, and assist with adaptation to change; and (7)identify barriers to improving and protecting forest health, analyze the effects of alternatives, and recommend changes to alleviate barriers. The slate of issues and opportunities to implement this strategy will evolve as society's needs change and scientific information becomes available.

Keywords: Forest health, Blue Mountains, landscape-level planning, economic and social adaptation, public involvement
